. we passed this budget, what impact did it have on the layoffs that were difficult decision for us earlier this year? >> debbie superintendent -- deputy superintendent lee. >> this was a tricky one. this makes a number of assumptions about revenues, expenditures, about ways to reduce expenditures, expenditures that remained, and so on. we have identified school based budgets and school based budgets are reflected in this overall budget for the district and i think that is the primary, not the only, but the primary part of the budget that is related to layoffs. there are layoffs that have been of limited and are moving forward to in central services departments as well. all those things -- the work in combination. we did have to reduce side budget allocations. we had a number of very consistent approaches to reducing expenditures in several centuries -- several departments as well. these are related to people as well for the most part. we also have layoffs that have not been recalled and some of our ascensions -- assumptions depend on the outcome of bargaining. we are planning to th
difference to us. it is just really helpful. when we come in here, it is under pressure. also, the out -- may not get beyond a few people. the notification and so on. so i really look forward to this. commissioner wu: thank you. any further public comment? seeing none, public comment is closed. commissioner miguel: i would like to compliment joanna nad claudio -- and claudia for the work you have done so far. i have had some engagement over the last year's with the department. i conducted two noontime forums for them on basically answering questions, and they seemed very receptive and understood the principles that were involved. what i have a slight problem with is not your power point presentation -- although, please do not read slides word for word. i am finding in one section community stakeholders. then i am seeing residents and businesses. then public. then department stakeholders. by the way, stakeholders never divide. i think you are talking about the same people, but you are using all different terms, and that does not make sense to me. then i see under the statement of purpose down
the seating. you do not just sit with a black person or a white person. it is about all of us, or none of us, and that is the bottom line. it has to be that mentality. >> it is a way to control the prisoners. it takes the pressure off the guards and everybody else. they say we want to stop violence, but you promote a violence by segregating. when an individual comes, the first in the asking, where are you from? what is your nationality? that is how to divide and conquer. that is the way the united states is made up. that is how you work. north and south vietnam, for instance. they divide people so that the pressure will not be on them. that is how i see the system. i see it in prison, how they divide inmates. it is scary if inmates unite, and they do not like that. when i first come to prison, it will be a big thing if i went and sat with the blacks. it would be a big think if they caucasian sat with the asians. we only did that one time, where everybody got together, and we got what we wanted. when you unite, you can conquer.

of that church, and i used to live between jackson and -- i cannot remember the other street, washington -- and i know that church well. i used to vote at the elementary school. i know the neighborhood well and i know about the church. it was not in this shape until more recently. i have a hard time saying, gee, we should play this game again with a developer who, by the way, this is not their first time the radio. if you want to make changes to the project to work with the neighborhood, if you have had two years, a lot of time to work on this, even before the last hearing. i find it frustrating to the commissioners time and the public at large to have to have this conversation over and again when there is a very simple thing that we have asked, actually, early on, that was not done. we're not even talking about the building and at the scale. just talking about the bare minimum at this developer is from the community, is familiar with the planning process, unusual requests have not been made. i just find it really frustrating, frankly. in terms of ceqa, it is very clear we're not to approve a pro
is cooling, we look at what the slowdown means for u.s. corporate earnings, and the global economy. >> susie: and one company is making a big push into china, marriott international, a look at its latest earnings and strategy. >> tom: that and more tonight on "n.b.r.!" >> tom: markets were clearly disappointed today the federal reserve does not seem ready to act right away to boost the economy. minutes from the fed's june meeting show only a few policy makers wanted to expand a bond buying program known as quantitative easing to lower interest rates and boost the economy. but as darren gersh reports this is now really a question of timing. >> reporter: the fed was not willing to give markets an immediate monetary fix, but the latest readings from its policy making committee show a couple more lukewarm reports on the labor market might change that. >> and if these employment reports are still weak like this last one, i think a strong case could be made for the fed to expand its balance sheet and try to support the economy more. so, at that point it will be clear that the recovery has stalled
or will be used for. it is referred to as a parking lot and other times as a slush fund. you have $1.30 million for support for dream schools. they were the product of the consent decree and the consent decree is gone. if you want the additional hour after the teachers work day, there needs to be some consultation with the union over adding that two peoples day. there has not been that consultation. we note with concern that despite the flawed reporting in the papers, central office has grown by 4.29%. and the human resources cut that was recorded in the paper as being 30% is actually 0.9 of one position and not the 30% that was quoted in the paper. there are things in here with -- that we would expect you to address. those other outgoes, the d.r.e.a.m. schools. we want with some clarity what is going on. >> good evening. i am a parent of a student. i am here because i heard about drastic cuts that are being proposed to the early education program. i need to speak up for my 4- year-old daughter because she is too young to speak up for herself about the quality of her education. i heard each cla
legislation could cost a lot more than friends of obama claim. joining us from washington is mr. peter doocy. >> when the votes were tally this had repeal measure passed the house 244 to 158 and no republican defected. mark ross from arkansas, jim mestison and larry kis el from north carolina all voted in favor of repeal. it was the 33rd vote this gop controlled congress is put together to either repeal or de fund the affordable care act. the whole process is becoming a big time waster. >>> casting these votes begun and again and again probably on average once every few weeks does nothing to improve the got tomorrow line does nothing to send a single 18-year-old person to college. does nothing to help build new industries in this country. it certainly does nothing to help provide healthcare to the american people. >>> but republicans see things differently. according to the speaker of the house the only reason their bills haven't gone anywhere is because the senate has stepped up. they have the opportunity to wido just that. >> for those who support repealing this harmful healthcare law we a
that the government will not allow us. but they are gradually changing their mind. they say in 2015, maybe we can go on with the program. >> you should see the graph of car use and bicycle use in amsterdam when they increased parking fees. the car use went down, the bicycle use went up. higher parking fees are very effective in decrease in car use and increasing other modes of use -- in decrease in car use iqi 5u9 it was quite effective. another thing, peter talked about the parking permit. in amsterdam, you have to wait two and half years before it because you -- you have to wait two and a half years for the parking permit. >> people except they can just not have a car. in amsterdam, the other modes of transport are so well-organized, it is just like in the hague, a car is more of a new sense that a create a car is more of a nuisance and liability. it is expensive. the other modes of transport are much more convenient. >> ok, mike, you have a question? use the microphone, please. >> separated bike paths in the united states are controversial, and they're slowly catching on. how important is it to h
the years, i came to the conclusion that what we had been doing with the war on drugs was leading us in the wrong direction. the impact that it had and not only in communities -- quite frankly in our entire community was creating a situation which doesn't necessarily make us any safer and frankly, i think we have criminalized an area i think should be really looked upon as a health issue more than as a criminal issue, and i think consequently, a lot of the solutions we have tried in the last 2 1/2 decades have taken us to a place where today we cannot afford it economically. i can tell you that socially we have been broken for many years, but now the economic peace of it has come to play and that's probably why, quite frankly, we are reacting. i think we can deal with being socially bankrupt much easier than we can deal with being economically bankrupt. i think now we've come to the point where there's an intersection between the two. having said that, i also think it's important to recognize simply taking people that are broken, because most of the people that have drug addictions a
of regressions based on efficiency improvements and the surprising thing to us, which also gave us more robust numbers an the eia has but surprisingly we have understated the degree to which efficiency gains have been growing. we have i think down more significantly robust view of canadian production than the eia has, and that's partly based on new revisions from canadian producers and the canadian government, and we have an uptick actually in alaskan production, so i think the major differences are found in the deepwater and our judgments about efficiency improvements in tapping new technology into a very robust resource base. >> so what i hear is essentially it's a series of microanalyses of different opportunities rather than different macro assumptions about the investment environment and so on. let me ask something about timing, because adam, when i said your scenario doesn't have a north american independence case by 2020, i picked 2020 on purpose. right, if i look at the charts you had up there, you got to that point by 2035, and ed, you have it happening sometime between 2015 and 2020.

pretty hefty fight they have coming up. >> dana: watching this reminded me of when my mom and dad used to make me sit at the dinner table. sit there and wait. i was going to like it by the time, you know, the dish or whatever festered and i swallowed it down. in some ways i know that the democrats want to move on. america is not ready. why are you looking at me like that? >> greg: i didn't understand the metaphor. >> dana: you weren't ever told to sit there and finish the dinner >> greg: they kept me chained in a refrigerator in the garage. first, how could you see boehner? he blended in the paneling of the room. >> dana: is it summer. >> greg: i agree with eric, the vote is like the magic markers you see at places where you use a $50 bill or a $20 bill and they use the magic marker. it's a marker for common sense to see how you vote. they only got five dems but again, to see who is going to take the side. and the consequences that will happen later. >> dana: that is why they would never take it up in the senate. democrats on the ropes in the senate that would not get re-elected. >> an
nations involved, thereby, denying the united states an opportunity to intervene. but the u.s. has been pushing china to join a multi-lateral framework with asean claimants to draw up legally binding code of conducts. u.s. engagement with groups such as the asean regional forum reflects a shift in foreign policy under the obama administration. the asia-pacific is now the focus of american economic and military strategy. that means potential flash points including the south china sea are of increasing concern to washington, especially when it comes to the military presence of china. nhk world's anthony yazaki reports. >> reporter: u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton arrived in phnom penh on wednesday afternoon. the first item on the agenda was a meeting with the foreign minister from asean where they exchanged views on the region's most delicate topic, the territorial disputes over the south china sea. >> i ask in my country why i put so much emphasis on asean, i tell them we work with asean on issues of central importance to the united states from maritime security to economic growt

, the president likes to say we're 4% of population, we consume 20% of the energy. the u.s. economy is 20% of the global economy and we use roughly 20% of the energy. that's about right. population is a demographic, not an economic input. and the fact of the matter is the whole narrative of the u.s. in the world, its role in the world, and our, as i say, the sort of selfish energy glutton, that's going to change as well. i mean, i think this is -- i do think this is on a scale of the berlin wall coming down, but i would also point out there's a book written after that came down called "the end of history" which was completely wrong. and i think that -- >> maybe it was just ahead of its time. >> way ahead. the fact of the matter is a lot of thought, in a lot of places around the world, tremendous decline rates. the notion there won't be tightness in oil markets globally, i think there will be tightness in markets. i think that certain technologies, renewable technolo technologies, they may not work here because gas prices are so low. they might work in a lot of other places. i think -- it
's a real challenge for us. i don't want to minimize it. roughly 40% of the people who are in the country unlawfully originally came on a visa. but the short answer to your question is they fall on the second prioritization. the question would be have they been here a relatively recent period of time or a long period of time? do they have other equities that mean they should be a lower priority for removal? for example, do they have united states citizen children? are they married to a united states citizen? those are the very real world decisions that we have to make when using the resources that congress gives us. we have about 34,000 detention beds on any given day by statute. there are more people than we can put in those. >> real quickly, do you have access to the entry level data if someone came in on a visa? i was reading some of the sharing of information of fingerprint data and you all have access to the illegal entry data? >> we do. as the chairman noted, right after 9/11, congressman dated information sharing and that's not only do we use it for purposes of these overstays, it'
that iranian oil output is falling in june to near 22 year lows as well. bringing back info use supply disruption that they are pointing out. let's just get a comment here from the head of research at orient financial markets. thanks for coming along. the iaea talking about oil demand. we get a read through sort of the global economic picture as well, talking about this muted recovery in global economies in 2013 and a very small increase in oil demand from 2012 into 2013. does that square with your global view of how the economies are likely to recover? >> yes, pretty much. i think what we've seen from china, what we saw korea today in terms of rate cuts, the japanese are holding steady because they already are at zero rates and not a whole lot more to do but the central banks certainly tend to agree with the assumption about the global slow down and it's inevitable under those circumstances that oil demand will go down. certainly from our part of the world here, there's no question that the amount of oil that we expect to be consuming for the remainder of this year and 2013 is not goi
think, because the situation we are in is completely different. most u.s. towns, when you start bicycling promotions, the first thing you do is to invest a lot of things, invest a lot of money without hardly any benefit because it will take sometime for people to go on cycling. so if the first time you have to -- it's a hard time because politicians will say oh, it's a waste of money because no one cycles. why would you invest in bicycle paths and so on? especially until you are in the upwards part of the slope as some towns, and even some u.s. towns. but like we are completely here. everything we do in cycling is immediately rehouston tiff. for instance, in -- rehouston tiff. for instance in amsterdam, they build 30,000 cycle places. i believe they will be filled from day one on because there is an enormous lot of people who cycle in the netherlands. and yesterday people asked me, tell me a little bit more, what are the benefits? and the benefits are in two directions. one of them that you can't tell in money, but it's about life. it's all the things we care about. it's about w

curbs and gutters and creating more of a pedestrian field. -- feel. making useful spaces on the terraces. getting feedback from the community and working with staff, we developed a plan to create two courtyards, which reflect upon how the areas have been used before. gathering places for a lot of the social activities of the people in chinatown. the first plaza has a level entry in the central portion of the space. we expanded the amount of seating and enhance it with landscaping. the second courtyard steps down and addresses the secondary entry to the emergency room. it also allows the plaza to expand beyond and wraparound james alley. it becomes more of a unified campus look. moving left to right on the screen, you see james alley. we put in benches. we show street trees. because of the stretch of the weight is a loading zone -- stretch of the way it is a loving son, and there are a number of existing utilities, street trees will have to be in pots. we begin to address some of the urban issues of framing the entries in making it more of a unified front. we do see an opportunity on ston

this intersection. and how to accommodate many modes end users. this is a street that is well used by cars. a number of muni lines go across broadway or long runway. we have bike routes, and we have traffic that is really important, particularly to the businesses that are on stockton street. one question we asked was if there is an opportunity to reallocate the roadway to better serve the uses we see on the street today? traffic analysis shows that there is a morning toll lane that is not at capacity right now, so our preferred design option really builds on this idea. what we have proposed is that we would eliminate that eastbound tolling, and that allows us to have two traffic lanes in each direction, and then we can provide parking all day on both sides of the street. a number of other streets -- streetscape amenities would be included such as crosswalk improvements, lighting. the package we are seeing in other streetscape improvements across the city. and in transit improvements. there are two bus stops on the street, so how to improve existing bus stop locations. if we zoom in, this is really t

for the use of the adjacent property. that is not what we would do today. we typically require no special restrictions. maybe that was an oversight because the properties were under the same ownership. when you have another property and you have the nsr, that as not owned by the same property owners. that may have been an oversight at the time because the properties were under the same ownership. that is my interpretation of the facts as best as i can pull them together. this is a unique circumstance. i will be available for additional questions. there is a curb cuts. it is clear on the plans there is an 18-foot wide curb cuts. i do not know where the allegations of the neighbor going in the dark of the night and creating a new curb cuts are coming from but that is an established curb cuts. there is a curb cut there, it is on the plans. that is -- i am available for any questions. president hwang: anything further? the matter is submitted. >> i will start by stating the obvious. there is no doubt that the joining at the hip means separation. the only reason i discussed that is -- let me b
